In Year 2, we study The Middle Ages in order to follow the noble stream of liberty. We emphasize the history of the Christian church and its impact on the world. The timeframe begins at the early Christian church and the Roman Republic. Students trace the people and events that brought forth liberty. We begin with the Roman Republic and the Heroic Age of the Church, and finish the year with the Age of Exploration.
Students will learn about the growth, persecution and martyrdom of the early church. Also, the characteristics of a mini-republic, form of church government, church councils, development of church doctrine and the
canonization of the Bible are overviewed. We look at Mohammed, the basic tenets of Islam and the Crusades. We befriend men whose faithfulness God used to transform entire nations, such as; St. Patrick, Charlemagne and King Alfred. The Magna Carta is studied as a key stepping stone on the Pathway to Liberty.
Beginning with the Roman Republic, we study the advances of Rome and it’s decline. We answer questions like;
How did the Gospel change individual’s lives?
What relationship does the gospel have on a nation’s form of government?
How was God working in history to transform men and nations?
How does an individual’s internal character influence their external environment?
How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.
Pathway to Liberty is a holistic curriculum covering Bible, history, character, writing, vocabulary and geography.
Join us in laying a solid foundation on which your student can build for a lifetime.

Tirzah’s people, the Israelites, have been in slavery to the Egyptians for many years. Tirzah and her lame brother, Oren, help gather straw to make bricks. She observes the suffering of her people and the injustices that are done to them by the Egyptian police. Moses begs Pharaoh to let them go, but Pharaoh makes them work harder.
One night, when the plague of death strikes down Pharaoh’s own son, he allows the Israelites to flee on foot, only to pursue them with horses and chariots. He believes he will have them trapped between the mountains and the sea, but God miraculously delivers them. The Israelites celebrate with a song of hope and victory. Tirzah befriends a young Egyptian girl who has fled with them, even though others treat her badly. In spite of hardship and disappointment, Tirzah and her family keep trusting Yahweh to carry them through.
The history of Greece is taught chronologically, as students read short biographical sketches outlining the lives of important figures.
